Too many box sets to choose! Enterprise replica or pin badges?



Just don’t screw it up Paramount, with EE and DNR and I’ll be a happy camper.

James Cannon - Runcorn Trekkie

Is the cover the same for the UK or do we get another cover?


The dvd/blu ray design is ugly. should have stayed with the teaser poster

Banging One of Baltar's Chicks!

I’m on the Pin Replicas boat… Don’t need the Enterprise clogging up my desk… I’ll use my 32 inch monitor to look at it as a desktop if I want to…



no Trailers?


i like the box art for the bluray and 2 disk dvd. Very bold and striking.


I’m not on Blu yet, so I’m getting the 2-Disc DVD.

If I were on Blu, I’d get the Best-Buy Blu-Ray with the Pins. Among other things, the Command pin would work well with my Movie uniform :)


Not impressed with theis pakaging what so ever

THe features sound cool, def looking forward to getting this.

Stating A JJ ABrams film on the cover is going to lead the mainstream audience to think that Abrams created Star Trek and not realise it was Roddenberry’s baby though.


So where is my copy of this movie on Beta? :)

Seriously the Blu Ray looks good.


Why do people always complain about the packaging? It’s just the poster.


I’m getting the Enterprise Blue Ray set, selling the Blue Ray, and getting a regular DVD.


what happened to the good old days when Star Trek movie posters were wonderful artwork?


Well, all the images of the “old” artwork featuring the Enterprise look to be a slipsleeve and the “new” Kirk artwork looks to be a regular Blu-ray case, so could it be one of those Iron Man/ Transformers style and have both artwork one on a normal case, one on a slipsleeve? Hopefully so, and seeing as the Best Buy exclusive still has the Enterprise art on the big outer box that’s holding everything, I say it’s a safe bet. But I’m pretty certain that Future Shop will have a Steelbook, which is what I’ll be getting.

I like the use of the 24th century LCARS font for JJ Abrams’ name.


hey does anyone know if this one will be released on iTunes?

Picard's Barber

I like the Single DVD box art the best. The others just look cropped too much from the same photo. Plus I really like how the enterprise image looks at the bottom of the cover. It really pulls the whole thing together I think.


Hmm, I think the whole marketing design for this movie has been rather awkward. The only art that I liked was the original teaser a couple of years ago which featured the badge close-up in blue/gold. Now THAT would have been a cool backdrop for the disk cover!

I'm Dead Jim

Yeah, I like the 1-DVD box art the best but will get the 2-DVD unit as I don’t have blu-ray yet. I guess they’ll release a director’s cut next year with the deleted scenes edited into the movie and I’ll probably buy that too. BUT THAT”S ALL!

Spock Of Ages


Whats up with the DVD missing some featurettes such as Props and Costumes? :s

i understand that certain things can only be done on BD, but the DVD seems lacking compared to the BD :(

Good, good. Paramount now presents us with the definitive “Star Trek is about ME!” Kirk the douche bag cover artwork.

It really is all about him, isn’t it? Gawd, I hate this movie.


Ack, Giant DVD Kirk is giving me the death glare!

3-disc Bluray edition? Nice. That’s a lot of extras. I’m hyped for all the behind-the-scenes tidbits, especially the Score and Ben Burtt features.

@23: And there’s another ray of flippin’ sunshine heard from.

Vulcan Soul

The link of NASA and a space popcorn movie such as Abramstrek that has nothing in common with serious science fiction is nothing short of hilarious!


I think the packaging’s kind of dull and monochromatic.. But that may have been the look they were going for. It certainly does stand out, though, so that’s a plus to them.

Regardless, I’m getting this. =) Just another thing to add to my collection~!



Because the movie posters NEVER centered around Kirk. Oi vey.


Original Trek and NASA never had too much in common either, so it’s a bit late to start complaining.


I think NASA is kissing Colbert’s ass now.

Mike W.

i wish somebody could confirm if the trailers and tv spots are going to be on the bluray and dvd. they were excellent and would like to see them appear on it. plus, i hope that the original art is the slipcover and the revised art is the case.

Happy Russia

Fugly, fugly, fugly…..

And people complain about the artwork for Nemesis? Sheesh…. Who came up with these awful covers? Dyslexic five-year olds?

I’ve seen better fan artwork.

Hell, I bet a blind monkey can make something better!


Looks like we’re getting a slightly different version here in Australia for the limited edition box set (which appears to be dvd only):

I must say that of all the artwork I’ve seen this box set looks the best so far. Truthfully though, I would have preferred this poster:

It has always been the one to capture the look of the film the most to me.


Good lord… how long did they labor over THIS “art”? About 5 minutes in Photoshop??! Horrible, boring, monochromatic.

Looks like I’ll be doing a custom cover… again. :P

The set that includes the Enterprise is US only. In the UK the same set has a copy of the “Countdown” comic.



at sam goody this evening… (sam goody is cd/dvd store…like FYE and others)…they have a fourth version listed for release. it was the 2 disk dvd set “with steel case”. thats all i know. that was the only detail listed.

know anything about that?


Why do the haters even bother on this site? Why not start a “Trekmovie09sucks” site and enjoy yourself? I promise not to come on your site and say how great the movie was…and it was. I’ve liked Star Trek since the original series aired and I liked JJ’s movie…so I guess I’m on the right site. What about you?

They look great. I will never cease to be amazed at the capacity some ‘fans’ have so far as complaining about minute details is concerned. If you don’t like the movie, why log onto this site? Why click on the link that says,

Final Box Art For Star Trek Movie Blu-ray & DVD sets

I guess some angry people find release in posting messages that conflict with anything slightly different that hasn’t been done a trillion times before. Does anyone remember how much controversy arised as a result of Chris Pine being cast? The people know what they’re doing! We should not be so quick to judge.
Thats my opinion anyway. Don’t fear change, embrace it. We can always go back and watch the old and loved series’ on dvd.


Strangely enough, the 1 disc dvd cover is the best. The blu-ray cover looks ugly, but I’ll pick it up for the blu-ray quality.

Ryan O'Brien

1 disc cover is the best. Not great, but less cluttered. Angry looking Kirk hiding in the letters is DUMB


@30: Sounds like we have a volunteer — go get em.

Rocket Scientist

For me, the cover art isn’t so much an issue. I don’t sit around scrutinizing it. Its function is to tell me which movie it contains. Beyond that, I don’t much care. I’m too busy watching the movie.

As for the so-called “haters”, sit back and enjoy watching them self-flagellate. It never gets old!


Never liked any of the artwork for this movie.

The teaser poster were some of the worst I have ever seen and the theatrical poster (In the U.S.) was just ok.

Very good/great movie, but weak posters/art work.


This is not a sales pitch but merely one fan wanting to let everyone know about something I have yet to see mentioned anyone online.

I am a Store Manager for f.y.e. aka Coconuts and Suncoast. If you purchased “Iron Man”, “Indiana Jones and The Crystal Skull” or “The Dark Knight” last year from an f.y.e you know that we had an Exclusive Steel Case version of the Special Edition available.

After waiting for an answer all summer as to whether or not there would be one for Star Trek this year, I finally received confirmation that there will be a Steel Case version for Star Trek. It will have the same content as the regular boxed Special Edition but is offered as a unique collector’s item.

If it follows last years Steel Case editions it will retail slightly higher than the regular Special Edition due to the case itself. It should retail for $34.99 and be on sale for $26.99 – $27.99 and come with a $7 – $10 mail-in-rebate.

There will be a limited amount of them made so if you are a collector and would like to ensure you get your copy you can visit any f.y.e., Coconuts or Suncoast and reserve your copy for just $5 and that of course goes toward your final purchase. You can also pay in full if you would like.

It is not yet available for pre-order at but should be soon.

Just wanted to let you guys know.

November 17th is too far away, which is why I’m glad the one-screen arthouse theater in my neighborhood just started showing it. And I have Monday off. Looks like I’ll get viewing number 4 in before DVD!

The Realist

What crap covers! I think of all the Trek Movies this one has had some of the worst posters and now cover for DVD/BluRay! Why not have common them with the other Trek Movies? This is just plain ugly, normaly I dont give a rats bum about this stuff but YIKES! I don’t particularly want it on my shelf.


#43 I mention this in post #34. I was at a Sam Goody store….which is owned by the same company as FYE

Oregon Trek Geek

I have asked my significant other for the Enterprise Replica edition for Christmas. I did point out that if he wants to get it for me, he must pre-order it on amazon. I hope he did!

And that was a great video. The Leonard Nimoy part especially.


Wow, I’ve gotta say that is the worst box art I’ve ever seen.

Wow, it seems it’s true. I don’t mean to be a dick, but… all stereotypes ARE based on truth. The bitching about the cover art is all the proof you need. There’s nothing wrong with it. It’s standard DVD fare. Window dressing, people—window dressing.


I got the slim ps3 when it came out here on Aug 26th., I am ready for the blu ray discs. FYI HD in full 1080p is awesome, my slim ps2 is eating dusts now. Star Trek is one of those movies that you must have on blu ray, after that will probably be Avatar and then Star Trek 2011.
